Living life as an infinite game, that is something Niki Harré explores in her new book The Infinite Game. She looks at our society (are people pawns or participants?) and ourselves (what kind of player would you like to be?) to offer a uniquely different vision of how we might live well together. Maria Armoudian explores the concept of the infinite game with Harré.
Niki Harre is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Auckland. She is an expert in the psychology of sustainability and is the author of Psychology for a Better World: Strategies to Inspire Sustainability.
